“We are very proud to report our 36th consecutive profitable quarter,” stated Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Allegiant Travel Company.  “I’d like to thank our Team Members for their great efforts and contributions to another successful quarter and year.

“We had an excellent December and fourth quarter.  In fourth quarter 2011, revenues were up 20 percent or $31.9 million on just a 9.3 percent increase in system capacity.  2011 was another momentous year for us, our fifth year in a row with double digit operating margins. While fuel put a dent in the operating results for the year, we made excellent progress in our ongoing projects including introduction of our 757 aircraft, beginning our 166 seat conversion and automation upgrades.
